This week Myles brought in a weather balloon that his grandfather had found. We took this opportunity to learn more about weather balloons and what kinds of data meteorologists gather from them. We are going to send the balloon back to the National Weather Service in Kansas City, along with a letter. We are hoping to hear back from them!

Congratulations to Arieonna for winning the Children's Literature Festival Essay Contest!

Reading Marathon

Last Friday we had a Reading Marathon to celebrate reaching our goal in the book order challenge. The kids got comfy and rotated between reading and creating a poster about their book for 110 minutes.

Our attendance last week was 97.5%. Our weekly goal is 95.8%. We also earned 10 minutes of extra recess for having ten days of perfect attendance!
